Are tummy tucks worth it? Ask Beverly Hills doctor about this and other body contouring procedures
Interested in a tummy tuck treatment? Want to know if this surgical solution is “worth it?” Many patients in the Beverly Hills, CA area take the time to invest in their body and address certain areas that may make them feel self-conscious. When patients have lost a lot of weight in a short period of time, they may notice excess skin that sags. This can be extremely embarrassing for patients, especially women who once were able to wear two-piece bikinis without a concern in the world! Thanks to the tummy tuck treatment available from Dr. Dennis Dass, men and women can restore their body contours and feel comfortable in their own skin!
What is a tummy tuck?
A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure provided by Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Dennis Dass, to eliminate excess skin in the abdominal area. Also known as an abdominoplasty, this procedure provides noticeable, affordable results for patients who have struggled with excess skin following a strict regimen of diet and exercise.
What is done during a tummy tuck?
A tummy tuck is not a method of losing weight. Instead, it is often performed following weight loss. It removes excess skin and typically leaves a slight scar along the panty line, ensuring it is as inconspicuous as possible. Patients will also have their belly button repositioned to align with the body’s natural design.
How do I remove excess fat?
Excess fat and excess skin are different procedures in terms of removal. Dr. Dennis Dass encourages patients to know the difference between these body contouring procedures. If patients need to remove excess fat AND excess skin, they may want to ask about the “mommy makeover,” which combines a tummy tuck with fat removal via liposuction. Liposuction will remove the fat from the abdominal area, and the tummy tuck will tighten the skin. Some patients may also integrate a Brazilian butt lift, during which the removed fat from the abdomen is injected into the buttocks to achieve a firm, rounder appearance. This combination of treatments is commonly requested by patients interested in addressing several areas of the body at once.
